Description

The aim of this course is to build upon the interest learners already have in the field of Creative Media Production, for example, Film, TV, Journalism, Advertising and Design. Learners will develop a substantial common core of knowledge, including pre-production techniques, critical approaches to media products and an understanding of the creative media sector. Through work related projects and coursework, they will develop practical skills relevant to the broad range of roles within the media industry.

Course Content

The course consists of 19 units over two years encompassing areas such as Single and Multi-Camera Techniques; Film and Video Editing; Music Video Production; Advertisement Production; Documentary Production.

Assessment Method

As a practically focused vocational course, assessment will be primarily carried out by the use of projects and coursework assignments throughout the duration of the course. These will offer opportunities to achieve Pass, Merit and Distinction criteria and will be tracked through the year to form one final grade for each unit, and at the end of year 2 an overall course grade, giving UCAS points in the same way as A Level grades.

Progression Opportunities

On completion you may progress to a range of Higher Education courses such as a Foundation Degree or Honours Degree.

Entry Requirements

Four GCSEs grade C or above or equivalent. Entry is subject to a successful interview.
